The first thing to find out before looking for a great luxury hotel in Kuala Lumpur is where to stay. There are several areas around Kuala Lumpur, which have different atmospheres, but one thing common to all places is easy access to public transport systems.
If you are looking to stay in Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC), there are many first class hotels there, such as Mandarin Oriental KL or Shangri-La Hotel KL. Some of the luxurious hotels stand out in terms of decor and overall design. For example, if you are looking for a truly sophisticated, modern place to stay, there is Hotel Maya KL; Egypt, for example, for a Japanese high class culture feel, there is Hotel Nikko KL.
The great thing about staying in this area is its location. Nearby are many of the international embassies, business centers and entertainment centers. Just a short distance from these hotels is one of Kuala Lumpur's most prominent landmarks, Petronas Towers, which are the two skyscrapers who are in Suria KLCC. There is also a convention center and Petronas Philharmonic Hall, an aquarium, a large park and a massive shopping mall filled with international brands complete with entertainment centers like a cinema.
There are also many first class hotels around the Bukit Bintang area, such as the Grand Millennium KL, the JW Marriott Hotel and many others. If you are looking for something else, this area also has its own exclusive themed hotels, like Hotel Istana, which is beautifully furnished – comfortable and modern, but with hints of a sultanate palace.
The Bukit Bintang area is a bit different from the KLCC area, as the streets are packed with shopping, shops and shops, restaurants, lights and people. Bukit Bintang is a hot spot at night, and here you can see people from all walks of life. The halls are impressive and you can find many discounted items and great deals. There are also a number of exclusive shops and restaurants here, and some good places to party or relax the night away would be Changkat Bukit Bintang.
Other areas of KL you could live in are around the Petaling Street area. However, there are not many luxury hotels around here, with the exception of the four-star Ancasa Hotel & Spa KL. But there are some good markets here, like the very busy Petaling Street Night Market, and also the Central Market. On the outskirts of the central city area there are Mid Valley City or Petaling Jaya. Although these are not necessarily quieter, and are more suitable for business, they stand around.
